Contemporary art lovers are in for a real treat. Gogolfest, the biggest annual Ukrainian festival of modern art will be happening this year after a two-year break. It will be held between Sept. 21 and 29 at the abandoned mechanical factory near Vydubychi metro station. 

Named after the legendary Nikolai Gogol, who is considered both a Ukrainian and Russian writer, the festival aims to bring together all forms of art. “Earth,” a black-and-white silent 1930s movie by outstanding Soviet film director Oleksandr Dovzhenko will be screened on the opening night and Dakha Brakha, a Ukrainian ethno chaos band is set to accompany the show with its unique music.

Pavlo Gudimov, the leader of a modern rock band and contemporary art gallery owner will present one of his latest projects called “Neofolk,” a selection of works by Ukrainian modern artists Oleksandr Babak, Ruslan Tremba, Oleksandr Kadnikov, Iryna Kalenyk and many others.

Margaret Leng Tan, Singapore-born American piano master is coming to give her first concert in Ukraine, which will be a tribute to famous American composer John Cage.

And this is by no means the end of the lineup.
